#3268856 New Lloyd Robson Oval Opens for PNG Hunters v Penrith

Posted by wackojacko on 06 February 2016 - 01:03 PM

Monster crowds as a Penrith team with the likes of Jamie Soward beat the Hunters 20-12 after the rebuild of the National Football Stadium - 25,000 capacity I think. Looking good for the World Cup.






#3268402 05 Feb: SL Match Thread: Wigan Warriors v Catalans Dragons KO 8pm

Posted by wackojacko on 05 February 2016 - 08:56 PM

Wonder if the coach would have lasted this long if their were other French Coaches available?

Catalan need to change the game somehow, is Gausch juniour injured?


Is it really the weather for a dwarf?

Rhys Evans has been phenomenal in defense.

#3267370 Auckland Nines

Can't wait to see RTS and Johnson link up - those two playing nines must be worth the admission price alone.

#3266737 2021 World Cup expanded to 16 nations

Posted by wackojacko on 03 February 2016 - 12:07 PM

Scrap minimum domestic competition. If a nation can pull together a team good enough to win their place, they deserve to be there.


Absolutely not, tighten the regulations if anything. The WC is only useful in spreading the game if it's incentivising development elsewhere. I don't object to heritage players but having 17 Australians with Colombian dads doesn't actually do anything for rugby.

#3266301 Wayne Bennett to coach England?

Trending on twitter now, good timing just ahead of the new season.

#3265665 Ricoh Arena Could Get RL Role

Posted by wackojacko on 01 February 2016 - 01:27 PM

Is that right? aren't you the adventurer..... haha I've been going to major sporting events all over the planet for years. But I won't go to a England RL game in places that haven't earned the right to hold them, at the expense of other venues who have earned the right.


You've gotta work real hard for your league if you're not born along the M62.

#3249453 Welsh international player decides he wants to play for Australia

Posted by wackojacko on 21 December 2015 - 09:40 AM

And a Welsh parent seems a fairly legit claim to nationality. Grandparents sometimes seem a bit of a stretch but your parents nationality is not.

This thread is about the perfect summary of rugby league fans. Maybe if we stopped moaning for a sec and got organised and voted then we'd have a chance of a podium or maybe even better for rugby league. Take the opportunities to be in the limelight.

#3239900 Autumn statement and RL

Posted by wackojacko on 26 November 2015 - 09:53 PM

2 years ago they organised 2 sell-outs, including over 17,000 against NZ at Avignon.

#3237590 Aude Cathare v Dragons - 9th January

Hopefully the weather will be a bit nicer this time :)

#3235900 BBC and rugby league

Really hope we can keep our spot on there. We may not get much promotion or coverage from elsewhere on the platform but we do get a good amount of our games shown.

Bit harsh on Bateman that I thought he was much better today.


Yep, made a couple of good breaks, by a long, long way our best centre.

Looking like a test match to me...

Good to have him back, the kind of player we need for 2017.
